Weekend Sewing


 On Friday night...with a whole list of things to do including new quilts to make and patterns to write...I finally sat down and worked on a pattern I've been wanting to make for over a month! Actually, I made two of them!



 I used scraps from Ruby, Vintage Modern, Scrumptious, Happy Go Lucky, and April Showers to make two Mini Spools quilts (pattern by Camille of Thimbleblossoms). One is for me...



  
and one is for a swap I'm participating in!These little quilts were absolutely a lot of fun to make.



I did some simple straight line quilting and now just need to bind them...


Sometimes you've just gotta sew what you want to sew! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Don't all those colours work beautifully? I'm working on a mini swoon.

Congratulations on your book release Sherri! I've been wanting to make this mini-quilt cutie for a while too. Thanks to your inspiration, I ordered the pattern from Camille today.

I love spools. I've been planning this block for years. I've always wanted to use stripes. Happy sewing this week. :)

I know what you mean...the other day I dropped everything and made placemats. Just because. :)

I love the mini quilt patterns. I have just gotten back into quilting and am having a blast.

Michele said...

They turned out really adorable. Maybe I'll keep that idea in mind...make a mini using bit of my favorite fabric lines.

Karen said...

These are quite possibly the cutest things I've seen in ages!!
